I have been able to stabilize the webOS Virtual Keyboard on 2.1.0 on both the Palm Pre 2 and Palm Pre Plus.

I have also made a shell bash file to patch the LunaSysMgr.

I have tested it and it works well on my pre.

The Shell Script has the following options:
Code:
USAGE: VKB.sh OPTIONAL:[OPTIONS]

Use one of the following [OPTIONS]:

  -patch
     To patch LunaSysMgr

  -revert
     To remove the patch and revert the LunaSysMgr to the original status

  -status
     To show the status of the patch

  -help
     To show this help page!
If no argument was specified, then the shell uses an automatic mode: where the script determines whether the patch is applied or not and does the opposite activity.

All you have to do to try it out, send the script to your Pre and through webOS Quick Install Linux Commandline execute the script.

Don't forget to activate the Virtual Keyboard by using:

1. the "luna.conf.patch" for webOS <= 2.1.0 using this luna.conf.patch. I got that from Arthur Thornton.

2. For webOS >= 2.2.0 (Pre 3/Pre2/Veer), I have made a new patch for this. Here it is Enabling Keyboard on Pre3.patch.

v1.1.6: Here (Added support for webOS 2.1.0 for Pixi/Pixi Plus) -- Thanks John Steffes for this contribution


SO FAR:
The patch stabilizes the VKB; however, when trying to change the screen orientation, Luna seems to crash. I am checking that later on.

Enjoy
